Help Lonnie Fix His Van!

Hello there! Our good friend Lonnie has been going through quite a lot as of late with his health issues and subsequent pain. He is scheduled to have a pain pump installed at MAPS Pain Clinic in December 2017 and is counting down the days until his surgery. The pain is so severe and is unbearable at times for Lonnie. On top of all that, his van needs some much-needed repairs. He has four issues that require immediate attention:

Low-effort steering replaced/repaired ($1,500 repair alone)
Lift is semi-operational and needs to be repaired
Transmission leak needs work

Lonnie is "always there" for anybody when called upon. Let's now come together to return the favor by helping Lonnie out for once! :) If we all make a donation, big or small, it will ease the worrisome burden of these costly repairs for him. And he would be so very grateful! Also, if you know of anyone who could potentially "donate" any automotive parts or labor, that would also be a huge blessing to Lonnie. Lonnie says: "Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I send my love to you all!" :)
